Difference is, Rivera is a great competitor thats humble. Jeter appears to have a bit of an ego. Doesnt want to let the good ole days go.
he lead the league in HITS LAST YEAR w/a 362 OBP
jeet looks pretty bad and probably should not play anymore this yr
age certainly is a factor but
I can blame a lot of that on the original injury in the PO last yr
it was the type of injury that kept him from working his legs the whole time
so I'm thinking while his ankle might have healed his legs never got into shape
which led to the other muscle/leg injuries later
no need to go into how important the legs are
take that and the fact he led the league a yr ago in hits
I have NP with him playing another yr
I have NP with him retiring now either
and with all this beat the lux tax stuff
unless he plays for that 8 mill players option
I'll probably lean towards hoping 4 retirement
Sure, he may still be able to hit.
But, if he insists on playing SS next year, over more abled-bodied players, that's a problem.
I'd be surprised if he were to graciously accept a DH role.
He really hasn't hit either
I attribute that to not playing, much this season, if not at all. no?
